Brief Note

Thank you visiting my website. We will be launching a new version – July 2022!
I have dedicated my career to liberate innovation and the digital world (inc computing and telecoms) to become powerful allies that benefit economies, societies and our environment. This has required working with governments, the public and private sectors and standard bodies to pioneer and successfully progress global transformations such as IoT (digital world meets physical world) and Smart Cities (digital world meets society). After progressing these important digital world paradigms, my leadership has moved towards its true destiny – that of Artificial Intelligence. This has always been the plan – beneficial alignment of two intelligences – one organic the other artificial.
Stimulating the growth of global innovation and development of territorial-wide eco-systems that drive large scale transformation have been important pillars to facilitate change. This has required assisting nations, regions and businesses to build the right frameworks to mindfully advance into their digital-centric future.
My work has resulted in global, national and regional impact. I am widely respected across the world as a maven that works alongside leaders to enable digital and economic transformation. I am featured and referenced in whitepapers, books, media, press and research. Please read biography below for more information.
I enjoy collaborating to create national or local territorial transformation. Since moving to the United States five years ago, whilst operating globally, I have collaborated with wonderful stakeholders to create national and regional change:-
  • Colorado Smart Cities Alliance. The US’ first state-wide, multi-jurisdictional and multi-stakeholder Smart City Innovation Ecosystem. Serving 5.5 million citizens; US’ largest Smart Region innovation eco-system;
  • Smart City Innovation Center to support state-wide jurisdictional and regional projects across Colorado. Launched September 2018 with some of the most prominent technology companies in the world. Featured in the press;
  • Building a new Smart City Global Practice for one of Colorado’s global tech businesses within 12 months. $100M revenue/pipeline;
  • National Artificial Intelligence and Super Computing Cluster for Smart Cities. Part of the NIST/NTIA/DHS Global City Team Challenge;
  • Launch of the Open Civic Foundation to drive a world first global standard for Smart Region. This herculean leap for societies provisions data-centric services for communities across a territory. Partnering with the global standards body – The Object Management Group, NIST and other standards organisations, public and private sectors. Fast tracking digital transformation for societies – home and abroad; 
  • Vision and blueprint for a new Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Supercomputing innovation ecosystem for the United States. The goal is to power national and regional transformation of the US into AI-Centric futures. Minority and Veteran owned initiative.
I invest much of my personal time developing unique perspectives to successfully advance our digital future. After guiding and waiting patiently for technology and the digital world to attain a certain level of maturity, my next contribution is to advance our world view and create a winning partnership with Ethics, Data and Artificial Intelligence.
After years of planning, It is a delight to announce my book titled “ Inventing World 3.0 – Evolutionary Ethics for Artificial Intelligence™ ”. This world leading guide is a comprehensive and practical playbook explaining how humanity can advance into an ethical based future with Artificial Intelligence. It’s a pragmatic advancement of Darwin’s theory of evolution for organic and digital intelligences to beneficially align for positive impact, and benefits.
This is the playbook to guide all stakeholders in Artificial Intelligence – government, regions and cities, businesses, organizations, innovators, citizens – on how humankind can advance into a winning partnership with Artificial Intelligence. This book enables humanity to take a quantum leap to shape its own destiny and that of an emerging digital intelligence. The result is the forging of a powerful partnership between humans and machines to progress our economies, society and our environment into flourishing world futures – World 3.0. Evolutionary Ethics for Artificial Intelligence™ are a world first and a new philosophy for humankind and Artificial Intelligence. You can purchase the book on many platforms in e-book and paperback formats. I recommend that you find out more by clicking here.
